      To Boulez and Beyond: Music in Europe since The Rite of Spring. By Joan Peyser. New York: Billboard Books, [xvii, p. ISBN $] In To Boulez and Beyond: Music in Europe since "The Rite of Spring," Joan Peyser has combined two earlier books: The New Music: The Sense behind the Sound (New York: Delacorte Press, ) and Boulez: Composer, Conductor, Author: Martin Brody.   Pierre Boulez, in Music Lessons, drawn from the lectures he gave at the College de France in his fifties and sixties, brings his theorizing to a stupendous culmination of over pages. Engaged with music as construct and communication, the book is almost a (Boulez) composition itself, full of ideas coursing in spirals of elaboration.5/5(8).
